Review: Hunter’s Heart (Alpha Pack #4) by J.D. Tyler

A group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers combating the greatest dangers in the world. And when the battle gets personal, their wild side is unleashed….

Ryon Hunter sees dead people—spirits that beg him for help in ways he can’t understand. He’d do anything to end the torment, until a beautiful spirit appears to him with a plea he can’t ignore: Help me…I’m alive. The woman is wildlife biologist Daria Bradford, mortally wounded after encountering a white wolf, calling to Ryon through a rare Psy gift.

When Ryon locates Daria in the Shoshone National Park, it is almost too late, but nursing her back to health at the Alpha Pack compound brings a new complication—Daria is his destined mate, and Ryon is afraid of what will happen when she discovers what he is, and what he had to do to save her life. But the biggest threat of all is still loose in the forest, leaving a merciless trail of death behind it. The Alpha Pack goes on the hunt for the mysterious white wolf, determined to stop the murderous rogue… only to find that the most lethal creature of all is the one they can’t see coming.

After reading and loving Black Moon to the point that it was one of my favorite 2012 books I’m wondering if I had too high expectations for the books that would follow. Hunter’s Heart was a good book, but it was nowhere near as amazing as the previous books in the Alpha Pack series. There were also several side stories that have been touched on in previous books that were either not mentioned or barely touched on.

As one of the Alpha Pack Ryon is both a shifter and someone with psy abilities. His ability to see the dead is often a nuisance as more often than not he doesn’t even know if he is helping others. He does what he can in an effort to assist them though. While lying in a hospital bed recovering from an injury a very much alive Daria appears to him begging for help. Daria reaches out the only way she can after falling into a ravine. She knows that time is running out and that finding any help at all is going to be difficult considering her current situation.

The Alpha Pack needs Daria to assist in them acquiring some intel on who is behind the experiments to build the Perfect super soldier. She has a very unexpected in that the Alpha Pack desperately needs. She also has another reason for helping them, it will inadvertently help someone of hers. This whole section was off to me. The person she is helping seemed to be placed in the book to drive up the tension between Daria and Ryon. The island woodland adventure seemed to go on forever while they were circling the island. There were times here that I nearly got bored with the book.

I think any reader could easily pick up the Alpha Pack series starting with this book. The big evil of the previous books has been settled to an extent and picked up with a different person in Hunter’s Heart. J.D. Tyler touches on the highlights of the previous book just enough to keep new readers up with what’s, but not too much to bore readers who have been loving this series from the beginning.

I love the Alpha Pack series. This group of sexy shifters most were Navy SEALS are just hard not to love. The world is cool too. Tyler has mixed in a nice variety of paranormal beings. It is definitely a series I recommend for all paranormal romance lovers!

    I was tempted to read this one because it’s a werewolf book but then I found out it’s already 4 installments in. Urgh! I’ll have to check-out your reviews of the other 3 novels because it doesn’t sound like this one knocked your socks off.

    I’m sorry the expectation wasn’t met. I just got the first book recently so I have a ways to go before this one. Thanks for sharing!
